Back Porch Restaurant Restaurant Review: Located on the banks of the Monongahela River, Back Porch Restaurant offers charm, history and friendly service. The impressive two-story brick structure was the 1806-built home of ferry-owner Henry Speers. The property debuted as a restaurant on Valentine's Day, 1975. Diners enjoy glowing fireplaces in winter and a patio in summer. The menu offers familiar comforts --- fresh fish, duck, veal, chicken and signature baby-back ribs. A house specialty is the gently-priced one plate meal of main, vegetable and salad. For sweets, there's a daily dessert tray, and other all house-made pastries and ice cream.
